A delegation of business leaders from one of China’s largest and most prosperous provinces visited UK Trade and Investment’s (UKTI) headquarters to hear about the benefits of investing in the UK.

The group comprised chairmen and directors from 31 leading Sichuan Province companies, including Jiannanchun Group Corporation Ltd, manufacturer of China’s most famous liquor.

John Cunliffe, UKTI Senior Investment Advisor for Asia Pacific, spoke to the group about UKTI’s track record of success, its services, and how investment in the UK can help boost their profits, benchmarked against key European competitors.

“The UK has a lot to offer Chinese business due to our R&D expertise across many fields, access to the EU market, world-class business environment and large number of Chinese companies already here," commented Cunliffe.

“Already the UK is home to over 400 mainland Chinese companies, including Shanghai Automotive, China Mobile, Huawei and Bank of China, and I hope that the delegation took enough from their visit to decide to bring their business to the UK.”

The delegation also visited the London Chamber of Commerce and Industry, China-Britain Business Council and Prudential Plc during their nine day trip (7-15 February).
